to my country. in fairness, obama announced the closing of guantanamo and dick cheney said it's a horrible idea, but these are the worst of the worst, a statement that was false. 40 of the people had been cleared by the bush administration. 40 more won habeas cases. peter dick cheney was lying or did not know the facts. the obama administration did not take them on, in any event. then they want to take that group into virginia, frank wolf said don't do that, and they backed down, the obama administration backed down. then congress said you cannot take them. what he's got to do is grow a pair of big ones, but he's got to have a plan and these guys to work it. there are problems, but it's doable, and he has the power to do it. it will take a few months, but he could do it. >> there's no political value in doing it. >> it has to be moral. >> it's your legacy. >> the lady behind you. >> where am i going? >> sorry. i'm from the constitution project on the detainee treatment. colonel davis managed the dark times yesterday. i was wondering, there are a number of individuals who have
, tucker? i mean, 30% of the country believes that barack obama-- 36 believes he's hiding something about his background and early life and it's not all republicans. >> right. >> megyn: and the amount of independents also believe that. >> the same poll showed 36% of democrat think that bush was part of the 9/11 conspiracy theory. it's a complicated world and people use the theories to explain it when they don't understand it. the real mystery is not where obama is from, who cares, it's the motives in doing the things he does, so he says obamacare would reduce health care cost, it doesn't. raising taxes on the rich would balance the budget, it didn't. banning rifles with certain cosmetic features will prevent shootings, that's not true. and the real question is his motives and stated reasons don't make sense. people have a right to have answer and i don't know what it is. >> megyn: is it because he was born in kenya, a muslim, or the ability for like the bill clinton did, to break through and say i was born in hawaii. >> he is a different kind of president than we've ever seen. he's an afr
address. when barack obama appeared four years ago the country did not know him, the beginning of his presidency. now for bet he and worse people know him. they know his strengths, weaknesses, the areas he's achieved and failed. it's more setting a brief mood for the country coming together. we have all this behind us. we're going to look ahead and then we'll get into the knitty gritty of our plans. >> second inaugurals are interesting things. some presidents have chosen to look backwards to talk about their accomplishments in the first term. others have not. george w. bush did not talk much about his first term but decided to make a bold foreign policy statement. what are the considerations that go into choosing what you say. >> when you look at the history of inaugural addresses there are some determined by the trajectory of history. john f. kennedy gave a speech that codified the moral commitments of the cold war. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like
for change across the country. of the -- everybody that is on the obama e-mail list, we did -- we asked some questions after the election. what do you want to do? how do you want to affect change? we're not done yet. they're not done yet. organizing for action will be a very effective tool. to organize people all over the country. for the president's agenda, to move us forward, whether it's gun control, to protect our children, whether it's climate change, whether it's immigration reform, whether it's to protect our economy and continue going forward for the middle class. these are things that people voteded for, and they want to keep working on them, and also train the next generation of organizers. so, you know, we've seen what this organization can do in the past, and your comment about whether it's just organizing democrats or whether it will impact republicans. when this group has been called to action all over the country, it has affected change in washington d.c. we kept middle class taxes low. we insured that every working family across the country had a little bit more money in thei

makeup of the country? >> i know barack obama. i trust him. i know that our president has -- not only house, but will continue to promote the cabinet that looks like america, that is balanced gender-wise, that is reflective of the changing face of america. i have no doubt in my mind that when it is all said and done that will be the case. this is the guy who signed the lilly ledbetter act and has stood not just for equal pay for women, but has always stood for the notion that when you open up the door for one of was, you open up the door for all of us i expect -- for all of us. i expect to see that reflected in his cabinet. >> has the white house or any administration circuit -- started to approach you about becoming a member of the cabinet? >> like the governor question, a question that has been asked and answered in the past, i will just say that as i said yesterday, i expect to be in washington quite frequently over the next few months with my work for the u.s. conference of mayors and the issues i have mentioned. i do not care toyesterday commey future job. i am focused on the job

it seriously. >> on the government's role during the country's worst financial crisis since the depression. her book is "bull by the horns" tonight on c-span's q&a. >> after that, president obama and by its -- and vice president biden had a wreath-laying and president obama took the oath at the white house. here is a look at the events today. vice president of the united states, accompanied by justice sonia sotomayor. [applause] >> the vice president has asked for -- ask that we bless the occasion with prayer. so, let us pray. the profit micah reclaims did you have been told, mortal, what is good, and what the board requires a view, only to do justice and love goodness, walking calmly with your dog. -- god. gracious god, we ask your blessing on your servant, joseph, as he renews the pledge he made to his country. in all the complexities that, this world, give us your wisdom so that he can know what is good and give him the courage to always do what is right. walk close by him so that he can do justice and labored tirelessly for a more just and gentle world. empower him to be a voice for those w
do -- not what your country can do for you, but what you can do per your country. they whereabouts the biggest lines at the time. but over time, they became important. how important is it for barack obama to find that one line that is important to his approach of governing? >> i hope he's not thinking about that. i think he is not. a line is a sentence and a sentence is a thought. it only lasts and breaks through and has meaning if it is a real thought. writing is thinking. when you can listen to a speech and hear the thinking, then that's a real document, you know? you can't just write lines. never try to do that. >> last time around, it was under 20 minutes, which was good, people approach brevity, especially on a cold day. we will see how long it is this time. >> the president has stepped into his second term in an intimate setting inside the white house. the inauguration is supposed to bring the nation together. but it is no secret that the country is politically divided, perhaps more than ever before. let's get some perspective from our political experts, karl rove in new york
there as a country. this is a characterization of what we have been there as a country. a few of the great goals for the four years to come. not a lot of specifics. >> president obama has the luxury of one more day to prepare for his speech. typically every president is different. what is happening 24 hours before an inaugural speech? do you suspect the president has everything in place typically bill clinton would work on his major speech is almost up to the last minute. i understand that president obama has some of those tendencies as well. this is such a big moment for the president that you have to make sure that he find 26 and it really is his voice. speechwriters' can give him a great draft. at this moment he is putting his final touches on it. >> we were talking about a lot of references to the 701 words by abraham lincoln. >> first of all, and there are not a heck of a lot of second inaugural addresses out there. lincoln's definitely stand out. possibly george w. bush. so much has happened in his first term. it was such a different picture international arena than it was at the beginning
there. >>> well, president obama has made no secret. he wants to do sothing about gun violence, and he stood before the country yesterday with a concrete set of proposals. some of them executive actions, some of them some work that congress is going to have to do, but many of the things he talked about still leave a lot of questions unanswered, and my next guest has a lot of those answers, and is still trying to work through some as well. he's new york's police commissioner ray kelly. thanks very much for coming in. i know you were in d.c. for the event yesterday, and i'm sure you're still getting your head around a lot of what's been, it seems, put together in warp speed time. but just from what you do know, your reaction to the president's actions? >> my reactions, certainly positive. i think it's something that has been overdue. certainly mayor bloomberg has led the charge, so to speak, in this area, and the president, i think, in essence supported everything that the mayor has put forward. >> one of the big criticisms is that while assault-styled weapons sound terribly menacing and
angry at someone that is so well respected in the country and is trying to shepherd your party into a new era. president obama won with a new majority. he won among women, asians, blacks, latinos, young people. what colin powell is trying to shepherd the republican party and say you can't dress it up. you can't put four or five people in front of the camera and call yourself diverse. not only does the republican party have a problem with diversity, they also have an authenticity problem. people would scratch their head and say are you being sincere? and colin powell is trying to lead that way. and he's not the only one within the republican party. look at jeb bush doing the same thing safing you need to change. and there's plenty of women that are elected to congress right now that are basically republican women trying to do the same thing. you have to change and modernize with the reflection of the american public. >> richard, i looked all day for a leading moderate republican to come out and defend general powell. why are they so quiet? >> i think there's a lot of fear in the
. durbin is giving mr. obama information on how to run the country when he cannot run the state of illinois. host: what are you specifically referring to? caller: the debt illinois is in. i lived in what they call "crook county." i do not know why he is giving the president and vice on how to run the state. host: thanks for the call. from the cover of "the weekly standard" -- louis is joining us from the jacksonville, fla. caller: the tea party people are robbing the nation. they did not allow a contract on supplying the military. when obama took office, the conservatives speak up. when did they think bush was doing all of this? host: the headline on the egyptian court. this story is getting some attention on this sunday morning. the court reporter please ordering a new trial. james from florida on the independent line. good morning. caller: i love c-span. thank you for it. i have never understood why in the 21st century we need political parties. i hear about disenfranchisement. i have registered as no party preferred. i feel disenfranchised because i am not in a party. why do we need the
. that is a very good thing for our country. thank you, emily's list. we are emily, and we ain't seen nothing yet. thank you all. [applause] >> a look at the jefferson memorial. president obama's public inauguration as tomorrow, which happens to be allocated. -- mlk day. [indistinct conversations] >> large crowds gathered here this weekend at the immelt came memorial. we have live inauguration coverage starting tomorrow -- mlk memorial. we have live inauguration coverage starting tomorrow. next, a look at how u.s. presidents have feared his starkly in their second term. the specific -- have faced in their second term. host: want to welcome author and historian richard norton smith. the most memorable second term address was by abraham lincoln. guest: there are people who thinks that it outranks the gettysburg address. it is the greatest way sermon ever delivered in america. anyone who questions lincoln's spirituality as opposed to his denominational membership, read the second inaugural. it is a remarkable addressed for its eloquence. for the message. at that point, clearly the war is almost over
private dealers to conduct background checks. i want to see president obama increasing federal funding for mental health treatment for all americanses who need it. i think these are perfectly reasonable steps to help this country begin to stem the tide of gun violence. there's been a petition on the white house website to have me deported on my views. here's what happened with one of the men behind the petition, alex jones. welcome to you. >> piers, thanks for having me. >> why do you want to deport me? >> we did it to bring recognition to the fact that we have all these foreigners. he's the only guy that had the guns. so we did it to point out this is global system and the mega banks that control the panic and brag they've taken over in bloomberg, reuters, you name it, brag they're going to get our guns as well. when they get our guns, they can have their world tyranny while the government buys 1.6 billion bullets, armored vehicles, predator drones, armed in u.s. skies, being used to arrest people in north dakota. the second amendment isn't there for duck hunting. it's there to protec
a gun grabber. everybody's a gun grabber. president obama did introduce yesterday a very broad package of reforms to try to deal with gun violence in this country. expanded access to mental health treatment, improvements in the background checks system, resources for schools to have more armed guards on site if they want them. and yes, a renewal of the old assault weapons ban that we had for ten years before it expired in 2004. since president obama introduced those measures all of the discussion in washington has been about the viability of what he is proposing, right? renewing the assault weapons ban, that's not viable, that'll never pass. that is the chorus from washington. the nra of course says that nothing will pass. old steve stockman says i don't care if anything passes, let's impeach him anyway, gun grab, gun grab. but because of what is going on in washington right now, because that is the discussion, we are also -- we're not just getting the sort of predictable loudness from predictable washington loud voices. we are also getting something really useful. we're also getting p
, not always quietly. i am very much opposed to the guns in our country. i do believe that people on the republican side have been unfair to president obama from the beginning because they are the ones who did not accept his invitations. host: thank you for the call. what is the nra opposed to a gun registry, we can finally tracked for the guns come from. itst: first of all two absolutely captures some of the sentiment out there. it has been strong from the start. democrats like to point out that mitch mcconnell said the senate republican leader said his chief job was to make president obama a one-term president. it is responsible for the gridlock in the chamber for the last two years or so. i would set one interesting thing about the numbers is that president obama's approval records right now is exactly the same, i think it is the same as bush's was as he began the second term 49% approval. interesting parallels, the republicans are just as unhappy with president obama as democrats word with president bush in 2005. there are parallels between parties by giving the other guys a c
. not recapping but what we've been through as a country. then, a few great goals for the four years to come but not a lot of specifics. host: because the this day is a sunday, president obama has the luxury of having one more day to prepare for his speech. what is happening 24 hours before an inaugural speech? do you think everything is in place or is there fine tuning going on? guest: typically, at least the president i worked for bill clinton, would work on the major speeches up to the last minute. i understand that president obama has some of those tendencies as well. this is such a big moment for the president that he has to make sure he fine tunes it. it is his voice. speech writers can give him a great draft but i think at this moment he's putting his final touches on it himself. host: we've been talking this morning about second inaugural addresses and a lot of references to lincoln's second saturday much more famous than his first address but that is the exception. guest: i suppose it is. there aren't a lot of inaugural addresses out there. but lincoln's definitely stands out. i'm t
that we could broken. the torture had ended before president obama to notice. that was a promise kept. if we get evidence to the country a rating will change. we have done that many times. >host: restricting wiretaps, a compromise so far. caller: close in guantanamo bay was an interesting one. even though he had support from his party in both houses of congress. that was the one that he was not able to keep. there were enough democrats that was opposed to that. caller: thank you for taking my call. i would ask to address mr. obama's promise that i think drew in so many young voters that he was going to be a great unifyer. he has set up to oppose the country and that basically 51% of american voters were for him. the other 49% of americans that voted for him feel like he is basically sticking his tongue at us and giving us the finger. i feel we were more polarized for us and i feel that as it promised or the broken end of public and to address that. host: as i was talking about earlier, there is a promise to that effect that we do have rating broken. the promise we just to represent th
this country is a safer place for all children to learn and to grow. thank you, and have a great weekend. >> i am congressman james lankford from the state of oklahoma. tomorrow, president obama will be sworn in for a second term, and though we disagree on many areas of policy, i asked americans to ray for the president and the nation in the days ahead. millions of americans are still out of work, and the cost of groceries, gas and healthcare continues to rise. in the long history of our nation, we have never increased spending and federal that faster than we have in this time. in the book of proverbs, it's as the wise man leaves an inheritance for his children's children, and unfortunately washington is taking our children's inheritance, and federal spending is taking families down. it is time for democrats and republicans to work together to create a plan to get our nation and families back on track. every family and every business has a budget. our nation should have a budget as well. every year the president is required to submit a budget proposal by february 4. the obama administration ha
? , >> guest: is a countries whose future is uncertain, and certainly it could become -- and already is a bit off the path of democracy in my assessment, but the battle really isn't lost. the american government -- the obama administration is trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it lost a lot of influence with the departure of american forces. one thing that the american forces did get in the united states is more clout inside of iraq. >> host: talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers. this issue that you write about in your book, "the endgame," but also some news that came out in november about the release of ali. >> guest: there's been a number of events that i think have worked against the american interest in iraq. that duke is one of them. she is an iraqi come he is a lebanese who was sent into iraq at the behest of the american courts because hezbollah is supported by iran. for the purposes of training of the shiite militia who were fighting the american troops, and he was captured along with a number of the shiite militia leaders in the rate con
't find tthe shelves are bare. >> december gun sales-- >> and obama is going to go for the guns. >> that fear is why ammunition prices doubled, assault weapons costing 600 now fetch $1200. around the country, high capacity magazines are sold out. >> i think they're going to been the-- ban mags and stop you from trying to buy the hunting rifles and then it will be your pistols, your .38's, grandma runs around the streets with. >> i do not answer my door at eight o'clock at night without a gun in my hand. >> california already bans magazines over ten rounds and requires a ten-day waiting period and universal criminal background checks including buyers at gun shows. >> people have become used to it, they recognize that's the way it is and they know that when they come to a gun show, they've got to abide by the same laws as they would at a store. >> and it may show blue, but some are seeing red. >> they're not taking my gun away, but they might as well because i can't find ammunition. >> and three recommendations you should expect on tuesday or this week, number one, a ban on assaul
, a lot of folks from suburban places around the country, it's become a bit unruly on economics. and i think obama has papered over that for the last four years. but i think that's going to change here in the next few years. the first issue where i think we'll see a conversation on this is the question of entitlements. there are some folks in the democratic party who are happy to have a conversation on issues like the eligibility age for medicare. other democrats like sherrod brown, the senator from ohio, i talked to, they say hell, no, we are not going to have a conversation about that. that is core to our dna, and we're not going to move on that. >> j-mart, last time republicans had an internal debate about a lot of these issues, a lot of folks divided the party. you mention smd moderaed some m coming over to the democratic party. do you see a contentious primaries in the future for the 2014 midterms? >> well, look. i don't think you're going to see the sort of club-for-growth-style conservative on moderate attacks that you see in the gop. i think you're going to see some of that. ke
